The Michigan Agriculture Department, together with state police, confiscated an estimated $7,000 worth of food products from a three-farm cooperative. Raw milk was the concern at the center of the investigation.
No charges have yet been filed, but the investigation has expanded; the FDA and Indiana Board of Animal Health have twice sent investigators to the Amish Indiana dairy that supplies the cooperative's raw milk.
The investigators are exploring possible violations of a federal prohibition on the sale of raw milk via interstate commerce.
Friendly retailers providing space to the coop have also felt the effects of the crackdown. Because one small Ann Arbor grocer was served cease and desist orders by Michigan's Agriculture Department to prevent the coop from distributing raw milk and organic food to customers in a warehouse behind the store, others are shying away from the coop for fear of losing their businesses.
